Joel Prieto debuts in China

Joel Prieto

After passing over the last two months lyric coliseums Dresden, Düsseldorf, Warsaw and Moscow, the Hispanic-Puerto Rican tenor Joel Prieto will re-dress as Prince Tamino from The Magic Flute of Mozart, with which just debuted to great acclaim at the Bolshoi Theater, this time for its debut in China, at the Tianqiao Performing Arts Center in the capital of the Asian giant (21 Y 23 of July). And he does it again in the great staging of Barrie Kosky Y Suzanne Andrade for the Komische Oper in Berlin that pays tribute to silent films and that Joel Prieto has already performed at the Teatro Real in Madrid, at the Warsaw Opera and the Moscow Bolshoi.

So far this year the young tenor has gone on to some of the most important stages in the world including, always with Mozart, the Los Angeles Opera (The Rape of the Seraglio); the Semperoper Dresden (The Rape of the Seraglio); Grand Theatre in Warsaw (The magic Flute); and Bolshoi Theater in Moscow (The magic Flute).

Although not everything is Mozart on Joel Prieto's agenda: after his debut in Beijing (China) his return to the Dresden Semperoper is announced as Iopas in Les Troyens, from Berlioz; the Teatro Real in Madrid to participate in Street Scene, from Kurt Weill; its debut at the Casals Festival in Puerto Rico with Mozart's Requiem; and his return to the Municipal Theater of Santiago de Chile as Don Ottavio de Don Giovanni.
